EU PRESIDENCY STATEMENT ON SHOOTINGS IN THE WEST BANK
The Presidency condemns the shooting today of three Palestinian civilians near Shiloh, West Bank, by an Israeli extremist. We offer condolences to the families of those killed and injured.
The Presidency welcomes the restraint shown by Palestinians and Israelis since the start of the process of disengagement from Gaza and the northern West Bank. It urges both sides to continue to do so in the face of such provocation.
The Presidency reiterates its full support for this process.
